    I've been wanting a bed extender for a while now but they are so expensive so I figured I'll make my own out of PVC for far cheaper. I haven't actually built it yet but I do have all the plans with exact measurements from my tacoma. Still haven't figured out a way of attaching it to the truck. If anyone has any ideas please share. Enjoy!

    It sounds good in theory, especially if you paint it, but for small things like groceries and what not, what about something that would put more stress on it?

    As long as I use PVC cemet on all the joints I think it sshoud be fairly sturdy. I am using it so I can put bikes in the bed without having to lay them down.

    Did you make this? I am curious. I want an extender mainly so I can have a partition in the back for groceries. Curious how it came out.
